The new cards will replace the current reduced-fare MetroCards as they expire, according to the MTA, but they can be ordered now on the agency’s website for free. “This is just one of our efforts to create a more inclusive and welcoming system for everyone,” the agency said in a tweet via its @NYCTSubway account. Previously, the cards were yellow for women and green for men. New Yorkers who are at least 65 years old or have a qualifying disability can obtain a reduced-fare MetroCard for $1.35 or less. The cards are personalized with the person’s name and photograph. By Alison Fox email@example.com @AlisonFox Alison covers law enforcement and breaking news.
